A chair on fire... metaphor "In The Hot Seat"

These Coaches on the Hot Seat Don’t Like To Hear It From You Johnny…..That’s Too Damn Bad…Give Them Hell Anyway Mr. Cash!

Post Week 10 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings

21.  Chuck Martin, Miami (Ohio) – What the Hell is this? Chuck Martin’s Miami (Ohio) team gets a win over Eastern Michigan by the score of 28 – 13 on Saturday?

We are SHOCKED because that is only FOUR wins now for Chuck Martin coaching the Redhawks in TWO seasons on the job which has led to the following records on the board…

Overall:  4 – 18

MAC:  3 – 11

….and we have to wonder….

How man wins can Chuck Martin and the Redhawks get in 2015 still having to play…

Akron
At UMass

Hell…we don’t know but it would be nice if Chuck Martin could win his last TWO games and get his ass off the Hot Seat!

CharlieStrong288118

22.  Charlie Strong, Texas – We don’t want to write in this spot that we will hear things and repeat them verbatim in this blog BUT a Coaches Hot Seat member was in Austin, Texas last week on business and while eating some of that good Texas barbeque two friends of the Coaches Hot Seat member were talking about Charlie Strong and the following was said after much discussion on the state of Texas football:

“I have this feeling that if the right school made a decent offer to Charlie Strong he would take it.”

What the Hell does that mean?

Would Charlie Strong maybe take a little less money to coach somewhere other than Texas to put the very unique in-fighting that exists around the Texas football program behind him and his family?

We don’t know the answer to that question but as we look over the now open head coaching jobs or head coaching jobs that will more than likely be coming open in the next few weeks….

We have a feeling that if South Carolina offered Charlie Strong $4 million dollars a year he would take it and run for his life out of Austin, Texas….which is our humble opinion of course.

Why would Charlie Strong take a $1 million dollar a year paycut to go from Texas to South Carolina which is clearly not as good of a job as the Longhorns head coaching job?

Call it Quality of Life or call it Something That is Familiar BUT most of all call it…

There are Lots of Pompous Arrogant Asses surrounding the Texas Football program that believe they are God’s Gift to the Earth that can make Austin a very uncomfortable place for a head coach and his family to live and we wouldn’t blame Charlie Strong at all if he went to South Carolina BUT would the Gamecocks be interested in hiring Charlie Strong considering the current state of Texas football?

Maybe…..Maybe Not.

As for the 2015 Texas Longhorns Charlie Strong has his football team sitting on a record of 4 – 5 and Texas still has to play games against…

At West Virginia
Texas Tech
At Baylor

….and unless the Horns beat West Virginia this Saturday we don’t think there is a Chance in Hell that Texas gets to 6 wins in 2015 and that will make Texas a very uncomfortable place for Charlie Strong in the coming offseason AND if Baylor runs Texas in that last game of the season…

We wouldn’t be surprised if someone around the Texas football program steps-up to write a BIG check to get Charlie Strong fired which might just happen because after all….

This is TEXAS we are talking about!

MarkStoops919191

23.  Mark Stoops, Kentucky – Mark Stoops is not an Idiot so like us he could see in live action and in watching a tape of the Georgia football game that his football team was just flat-out…

A Damn Disgrace and Just A Poorly Coached Football Team

….that made one Damn Stupid Mistake after another Damn Stupid Mistake in the early part of the Georgia game and things didn’t get any better as the game wore on and that has us here at Coaches Hot Seat wondering:

Have the Kentucky players quit listening to Mark Stoops and his coaches?

Hey…we are serious about the above question and we challenge anyone to watch the Georgia game and not think the same thing because the TRUTH is…

Kentucky was NOT Prepared or Ready to play Georgia on Saturday…PERIOD!

With that loss to Georgia the Wildcats have now lost…

4 Straight Games

5 of their Last 7 Games

….and if not for that overtime win over FCS Eastern Kentucky we are looking at Defcon 4 for Mark Stoops in Lexington because when you only have wins over….

Mediocre La. Lafayette

Mediocre South Carolina

FCS Eastern Kentucky

Mediocre Missouri

…you sure the Hell don’t have much and why the pressure is REALLY on Mark Stoops in the Cats three remaining games against:

At Vanderbilt
Charlotte
Louisville

Damn….for the life of us with Kentucky now sitting at 4 – 5 it looks like UK will finish at…

5 – 7

….in 2015 and miss a bowl game AGAIN in Mark Stoops THIRD year in Lexington and that’s NOT good folks!

ToddGraham81818

24.  Todd Graham, Arizona State – In a season that began with Arizona State getting RUN by a very Mediocre Texas A&M team and with only FOUR wins on the board over…

FCS Cal-Poly

Mediocre New Mexico

UCLA which ALWAYS chokes ONE…sometimes TWO Games a year under Jim Mora

Mediocre Colorado

….the Sun Devils have beat next to NO ONE in 2015 and now Todd Graham’s football team which was predicted by some to be in the College Football Playoff is fighting to just get into a bowl game with these games still to be played….

Washington
Arizona
At California

Our opinion…..Arizona State SHOULD win their last THREE football games….BUT more than likely….Arizona State loses TWO of their last THREE football games which would lead to Todd Graham sitting on one of the Hottest Seats in the country going into the 2016 college football season.

KliffKingsbury271717

25.  Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech – The loss to West Virginia on Saturday adds up to THREE straight losses for Kliff Kingsbury and leaves the Red Raiders at 5 – 5 on the season and needing another win just to get bowl eligible and is that what the “powers that be” at Texas Tech expected from Kingsbury’s football teams when they hired him THREE years ago in Lubbock….

Fighting for bowl eligibility with only TWO games left in the season?

NO…is the simple answer to that question and it would be a….

Complete Freaking Disaster

….if Texas Tech lost its last TWO games to….

Kansas State
At Texas

….which are both Mediocre Teams at best and thus why the pressure is really on Kliff Kingsbury now or face….

A Tremendous Amount of Heat when the season ends on Thursday November 26 in Austin against the Texas Longhorns!

Our recommendation to Kliff Kingsbury….

Beat Kansas State this Saturday at home son!

RichRodriguez8881

26.  Rich Rodriguez, Arizona – There are some fascinating things going on with Rich Rodriguez at Arizona and it will be very interesting to see what happens with RichRod in the coming weeks because it’s our opinion here at Coaches Hot Seat that Rodriguez is like most Americans that grow-up in the very green American East who are dropped into a place like Tucson, Arizona in the American Southwest which is how we feel as well growing up in the very green San Francisco Bay area which goes something like…

“Hey…the desert here in Arizona is just so Damn beautiful….the Sun is out all the time…the golf is great….the people are easy to be around…..this is just GREAT….BUT!”

Troon North Golf Club Overview, Pinnacle Course Scottsdale, Arizona

Take it from us here at Coaches Hot Seat who routinely travel to Scottsdale, Arizona for San Francisco Giants spring training baseball and to play golf on the terrific golf courses in the state Great State of Arizona that the above is the feeling of people that have grown-up in green places for about….

Two Weeks

…and then you are ready to get your ass back to a place that is GREEN and not that Damn Ugly Desert all the time and thus why it’s our opinion here at Coaches Hot Seat that if….

Virginia Tech
Virginia
Miami
South Carolina
Kentucky
Georgia

….offered Rich Rodriguez their open or might be open head coaching job RichRod would be on the first plane out of Tucson in our humble opinion and with that in mind maybe that is why the Arizona Wildcats have struggled so much in 2015 with a record of…

5 – 5

…with those 5 wins coming against….

Texas San Antonio
Nevada
Northern Arizona
Oregon State
Colorado

…which about ANY football coach in America could have coached this Arizona team to wins over and why the remaining TWO games on Arizona’s schedule will also be fascinating to watch:

Utah
At Arizona State

Can we envision a scenario where Arizona loses its last TWO games to finish at…

5 – 7

….on the season and shortly after Arizona plays Arizona State on Saturday November 21…or maybe in early December….Rich Rodriguez is announced as the new head football coach at one of the following schools?

Virginia Tech
Virginia
Miami
South Carolina
Kentucky
Georgia

YES…we could envision that happening and with that in mind let us say a few things about Rich Rodriguez:

In our opinion…when in the RIGHT situation and properly motivated….

Rich Rodriguez is one of the best college football coaches in the country

….and that is why it’s so Damn important for Rodriguez to be in the right situation for himself and also his family and if we were RichRod’s agent right now we would be telling him something like….

“Focus on beating Utah and Arizona State….PERIOD…and let me talk to athletic directors and their “representatives” and we can sit down and talk on the evening of November 21 and see what if any viable options you might have on the table including a few very good jobs that are not now open that are likely to open in early December as coaches move to other programs.”

Focus on beating Utah Rich Rodriguez and the AD at Arizona Greg Byrne should make sure his potential head coach hiring list is updated and ready to go!

DougMartin281818

27.  Doug Martin, New Mexico State – Doug Martin’s New Mexico State team got ANOTHER win over Texas State on Saturday and now the Aggies record in 2015 stands at….

2 – 7

….and with these games still left on the schedule….

At La. Lafayette
Arkansas State
At La Monroe

…maybe Doug Martin’s team can pick-up another win or two before the 2015 college football season is brought to a close….but who the Hell knows really?

We sure the Hell don’t!

KevinSumlin1818181

28.  Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M – NO….losing to a Very Average Auburn team on your home field which has been described by an A&M-alum friend of ours as a…

“F-ing Palace where Sumlin better Damn start winning some games in!”

KyleField8181818

….is NOT a good look especially in your…

FOURTH season on the job

AND

48 th Game coaching the Aggies

….and with that loss to Auburn Kevin Sumlin has entered some Very Damn Dangerous Territory because with the Aggies now at 3 – 3 on the season in SEC play IF somehow A&M lost both games….

At Vanderbilt
At LSU

….to end the season after playing Cupcake Western Carolina this Saturday and finishing the season in SEC play at…

3 – 5

….there is Very Damn Good Chance Kevin Sumlin is out of a job when the calendar turns to December because that would leave Sumlin’s Overall SEC record at A&M at….

16 – 16

…in FOUR years on the job and if you are paying someone $5 Million Dollars A Year PLUS don’t you think he should be better than…

Just Damn AVERAGE?

YES….and we have to think some of those oil boys in South Texas who dug their money out of the ground the hard way and weren’t handed a…

“F-ing Palace”

….to play football games in feel the same way as well so our recommendation to Kevin Sumlin is..

You better Damn beat Vanderbilt on November 21 son!

FAUStadium

29.  Charlie Partridge, Florida Atlantic – Charlie Partridge’s FAU team lost another game on Saturday to Western Kentucky and that leaves the Owls record in 2015 at…

2 – 7 overall

2 – 4 Conference USA play

….and Charlie Partridge’s records in TWO years on the job at…

Overall:  5 – 16

CUSA:  4 – 10

….and that isn’t good Charlie…that’s just No Damn Good!

Here is what Florida Atlantic has left on their schedule…

Middle Tennessee
At Florida
At Old Dominion

How about winning some Damn football games Charlie? Is that REALLY too much to ask?

Didn’t think so!

BretBielema188181

30.  Bret Bielema, Arkansas – It was NO surprise to anyone here at Coaches Hot Seat that…

The Hocus Pocus that Hugh Freeze dreams-up and seems to work early on in each football season is AGAIN falling to pieces around him and his Ole Miss football team

….and thus no surprise the Ole Miss Rebels Totally Collapsed and lost to a Very Damn Average football team in Arkansas on Saturday and in the process put Hugh Freeze on a trajectory to find his rear-end on the Hot Seat with ONE more loss BUT getting back to Bret Bielema that is now….

5 Wins for Arkansas in 2015

…..which folks are celebrating in the State of Arkansas which should show everyone just how FAR the Arkansas football program has fallen since Bobby Petrino posted a 11 – 2 record in 2011 following a 10 – 3 record in 2010!

With these games left on the schedule….

At LSU
Mississippi State
Missouri

….Arkansas SHOULD get to 6 wins in 2015 BUT if Arkansas finishes at 6 – 6 in 2015 that would leave Bret Bielema’s record after THREE seasons on the job at Fayetteville at….

Overall:  16 – 21

SEC:  6 – 18

Geez…..if the above records make supporters of Arkansas football happy then Arkansas football is DEAD because if a Stanford football coach put up the above records right NOW since Stanford football coaches have been told they will be held accountable for the performance of the Cardinal football program on and off the field which began in 2007 there would be…

A Helluva LOT of Pissed-Off Stanford Alums, Boosters and Fans of Stanford Football on The Farm right now with torches and pitchforks!

At Arkansas they laugh at and kiss Bret Bielema’s BIG ASS!

Congratulations Arkansas Football Fans…

You are the BIGGEST LOSERS on Earth even ahead of the LOSERS that support the Dallas Cowboys and that Sorry Excuse for a Human Being Jerry Jones who in our opinion would trade the life of EVERY child in America to win another Super Bowl!

Oh…Jerry Jones played football at Arkansas…see there is symmetry in the world after all!

Coaches Hot Seat Quotes of the Day – Wednesday, November 11, 2015 – Veterans Day

 

VeteransDay2015

VeteransDay2015A

“Freedom Is Not Free.”  Colonel Walter Hitchcock

And

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” John Fitzgerald Kennedy

And

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” Ronald Reagan

And

“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don’t have that problem.” Ronald Reagan

And

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause. Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

And

“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” Mark Twain

And

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Joseph Campbell

And

“The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.” Jeff Miller

And

“We, too, born to freedom, and believing in freedom, are willing to fight to maintain freedom. We, and all others who believe as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.” Theodore Roosevelt

And

“Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men.” George S. Patton.

And

“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave …” Patrick Henry

And

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Abraham Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address
